This book was great. I totally understood everything that Sierra goes through because I'm the same age. I would have handled some situations a bit differently though. This book just reminded me that I want to go on a mission trip too and in fact heightened my desire to go on one. She goes on one and it completely changes her. Just like her, I also want to grow up and go to college sooner. It made me see that I should cherish my teenage years a bit more before growing up. As much fun as growing up is, it has its challenges. I also understood how she feels about guys and how she has never dated one. When she comes back from her mission trip and has to settle in a new area I understood her resentment. Personally I did not understand why she wouldn't want to go to a private Christian school, having gone to one for years myself. Everyone is different I suppose, though I love Sierra's love for God even when times are tough. Her love for her grandma is inspiring too. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series to see what else Sierra goes through and how she handles it. This is definitely a teen girl book series.
I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers through their Blogging for Books Program in exchange for an honest review.
